Toby's backless dress vs. Professor Quaker Oats' puffy shirt and grey wool socks. And it is Ian who is getting hit on at work. Does anyone else find this story a little backwards?

I didn't notice this before, but Brony has a serious case of mange that he's trying to cover with a combover. Those Santa Ana winds can be a real social buzzkill.

This entire story just became about the My Little Pony guy. In fact, the entire meaning of life just became about the My Little Pony guy.

I'm sorry that I missed Mary's Christmas dinner, but it is nice to know that Dawn returned from Italy and did not appear to be pregnant. I'm also very happy for Jannie. Not all college professors are so excellent, and while his reviews are definitely mixed, he seems to strike a chord with the brighter students.

I hope everyone had a happy holiday. Our oldest got married on Saturday, and then with family around for Christmas, I've been a little busy. It may delay the Worthy Awards, but they will happen!

My best wishes to you for a very happy New Year!

I'm so happy that we get a story where Mary Worth teaches Toby how to spice up her marriage. Karen Moy's special Christmas gift to all of us. Thank you.

Things got a little hot and heavy on the boat ride with Jeff, and I'm just relieved to see that Mary will be spending the night with her little blue cat toy.

If you love her so much, Jeff, why don't you kiss her? Oh... wait. You are kissing her... Well, try not to get too carried away.

Not as relieved as I am to see this pet adoption PSA finally setting on the horizon. I feel like I learned a lot about buying tires.

Just for laughs, I ran today's Worthy-Speak through Google translator into Korean:

Jeff: 고양이 알레르기를 수락 해 주셔서 감사합니다. 네가 리비를 좋아한다는 걸 알아.
Mary: 그녀는 지금 에스텔과 함께 있고 모든 당사자는 행복합니다.
To get a sense of how much Google Translate struggles with Worthy-Speak, I then translated it into English.
Jeff: Thank you for accepting allergies to cats. I know you like Libby.
Mary: She is now with Estelle and all parties are happy.
Color me impressed.

I was adopted the same way. My foster parents gave me to the lady down the hall.

As Myster Wynter should have taught you, Mary, no pet lives forever. Libby won't find her forever home until you send her over the Rainbow Bridge.

"Yeah, yeah... you miss Jimmy. Of course you do. SAY! Do you like CATS?"

I'm having a little trouble knowing how to answer Libby's question. It really all depends on her tone. If she's asking "Meow?" as in a sincere "I'm not?" then the answer is a simple, "No, you are not." But if she's defiant in her tone, such as "Why not?" then Mary will need to explain about the bacteria on Libby's paws lingering from her recent litter box visit, and how cats should never walk on food preparation surfaces. Knowing Libby, I don't think she's going to like that answer at all.

"I can't tell Jeff to stay away. Heaven knows I've tried."

Sometimes this blog writes itself.

Actually, it doesn't write itself, as you've no doubt noticed that I've missed posting on quite a few days. We hosted Thanksgiving this year, work has gotten very busy, and my oldest daughter is getting married later this month... so the Wanders family has been a little bit busy. I do intend to get the Worthy Award nominations posted by Christmas, and after that, my life should be back to normal in January just in time to host the Awards Ceremony. Thanks to everyone who keeps this blog going, even when I'm not around. So while this blog doesn't write itself, I do feel that it is written by all of us; not just me. Thanks everyone, and happy holidays!
